Ways to Raise a Smart Kid

How can you raise a smart kid? Buy the kid books. You don’t, however, have to read them.
That’s the conclusion I drew after reading the results of a new study in the journal Research in Social Stratification and Mobility. The researchers argued that there is a strong correlation between the number of books a family owns and a child’s academic track record.
The researchers went to a lot of effort to document this finding. Over a 20-year period, the study looked at more than 70,000 people in 27 countries.
